ACC Roundup

In ACC news, UNC had a much
tougher than expected trip
to Tallahassee, and were very lucky to have Joseph
Forte on their side,
as Forte is emerging as one of the better
clutch players
of recent years in the conference. Sometimes it's
hard to beleve he's still a sophomore. In some ways this was probably
FSU's best game of the season. It was

Quin Snyder returned to his old ACC haunts briefly yesterday as he led his Mizzou

It's a quality win for UVa,

In Raleigh, Lee Fowler sat
down for an interview with the N&O
and discussed Herb Sendek, among

comes to town.

totally sold yet, though at some point you have to say numbers are numbers and
wins are wins. It
could be an interesting day today.
State gave them great games last year,
winning in Raleigh and they should have won in College Park had Damon Thornton
not imploded.
